At the 2019 Toronto International Boat Show, Canadian Yachting magazine editor Andy Adams had the pleasure of interviewing Ron Huibers, president and CEO of Volvo Penta of the Americas about their evolving focus on “Easy Boating” and he used their great new water sport control system as an example. It was designed to create a unique user experience for wakesurfing, wakeboarding and waterskiing enthusiasts. The innovative control and display system gives boatbuilders a turnkey Volvo Penta water sport package that’s fully integrated with the Forward Drive, Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) and Glass Cockpit systems.
“Wakesurfing is one of the fastest growing trends in today’s boating market, and we’re seeing even more boatbuilders bringing to market a new class of boats optimized for water sports enabled by Volvo Penta’s Forward Drive technology,” says Huibers.
